CotoneteInside Outside – First EP Series Vol 1 ... 12-inch
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2017. New Copy ... $19.99
A jazzy instrumental with a very classic vibe – served up with some especially nice keyboard work from Florian Pellissier – who you might know from records issued under his own name! "Inside Outside" owes a fair bit to 70s funky jazz for inspiration – but it's also got a crackling sort of rhythm approach – played live, but maybe inherited a bit from the broken beat generation – which gives the music an urgently current vibe. Side one features the long core track of the tune – originally written by MPS legend Joanne Grauer – and side two features two Phil Asher/Restless Soul reworks. 12-inch, Vinyl record

ChangeIt's A Girl's Affair/Searching (new disco mixes by Mike Maurro) (180 gram pressing) ... 12-inch
RFC/Groove Line Records (UK), 1980. New Copy (pic cover)... Just Sold Out!
Two classic tracks from Change – each of which features the group with some of their best singers ever, both presented here in new funky mixes by Mike Maurro! "A Girl's Affair" has Jocelyn Brown in the lead – wonderful vocals for the snapping, captivating groove of the tune – lots of lean work on bass amidst the percussion and keyboards – while Brown sends the whole thing home with plenty of soul! "Searchin" is one of the catchiest cuts that Change ever recorded – a tune that has the mighty Luther Vandross on vocals, but singing in a way that's quite different than his later albums to come – a mighty nice match for the percolating groove of the song! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Nicola Conte & Gianluca PetrellaAfrican Spirits/New World Shuffle ... 12-inch
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $16.99
A record that's way more than just the 12" single you might guess from the format – as it's a wonderfully deep collaboration between Nicola Conte and trombonist Gianluca Petrella – done at a level that's maybe more like a spiritual jazz record overall! "African Spirits" definitely has a groove – the sort you'll know from other Conte records – but it's less bossa and more tribal, with lots of percussion layered in the mix, as well as rising voices that feel borrowed from other records – all blended with a righteous energy that's more in Osunlade territory than usual for Schema! The tune's got a very powerful set of solos – strong tenor, and even bolder trombone from Petrella – and "New World Shuffle" is even rawer at the core, but features strongly soulful vocals from Bridgette Amofah, and some great keyboards too! Both tracks are nice and long, too. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Indian OceanSchool Bell Treehouse/Tree House Schoolbell (parts 1 & 2) ... 12-inch
Sleeping Bag/Get On Down, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 14.98
One of the most offbeat 12" singles to ever come from the hands of Arthur Russell – and that's saying a lot, given some of his other grooves! The approach here is much more experimental than some of Russell's other projects for Sleeping Bag Records – as the main track builds slowly from a mix of electronic rhythms and percussion, layered with deep sounds that really match the groove – but at a pace that's dark and moody, although building with tribal energy as things move on! There's a pan-global, past/future vibe going on here – one that reminds us how revolutionary Russell was at the time, and what a huge inspiration he was to later giants of the post-house, post-club global scene. Over 20 minutes of music between the two sides – more like a short album instead of a 12" single! 12-inch, Vinyl record
